Oct. 3-9
We made it through another strong week in the gym! Routines are coming together. This week on floor, we started working on sequential tumbling by doing passes back-to-back to work on endurance and accuracy.

Bars is coming along great and the team is looking stronger and cleaner daily. I think all the bar conditioning is finally paying off!

This week on vault, we worked a lot on our base vaults and improving the little corrections that will take our vaults to the next level!

Beam is continuing to improve and the girls are looking very solid and confident with their skills.

The coaches and gymnasts are very optimistic with where we're heading and I know everyone's really excited to see all our hard work pay off!

For the next seventeen weeks, I will be introducing one member of the team, so that our fans can get to know the team a little better. This week, the spotlight is on Samantha Marrero, a freshman from Farmingville, New York. She began gymnastics at the age of ten. Her favorite event is beam, and boy is she great at it! She's very consistent in the gym and I can easily see her contributing in all four events!

When asked why she came to SEMO she said she loved the gymnastics program and loved the emphasis our team had on academics.

When asked what she what she would be if she could be anything she wanted her response was, "a fairy because I would be extremely small and able to fly!"

Her personal goals for this season are to get a 4.0 and to compete in at least three events.

This week is a short week for the us! We leave for Fall Break on Thursday afternoon, so we'll have three solid practices with a swim workout on Wednesday afternoon to finish out our hard week!
